This talk will provide tips on working with individuals who are highly motivated to escape from academic tasks in classroom settings and will cover the following topics:

1) Using reinforcers effectively; including finding reinforcers, rate of reinforcement, reinforcer interruption, differential reinforcement, and increasing tolerance to reinforcer removal and to delay of reinforcement, 2) how to analyze WHY a child wants to escape from a task, and 3) how to alter “educational discriminative stimuli” to decrease the probability of escape. Participants will also learn what to do with task avoidant juggernauts. Participants will also learn about the "Sd voice" (discriminative stimulus), which some may call a "poisoned cue" and how to fix this very common problem.
